For this installment of our “Meet the Rocket Builders” blog series, we would like to introduce Kyle Huff, our most recent hire from the Iron Yard, and one heck of a guy! Kyle joined RocketBuild in June of 2017, and in only his second month he earned the title of RocketBuilder of the Month, earning the much-coveted rocket-car trophy for his desk.
Kyle comes to RocketBuild by way of the Cincinnati metro area, from whence he migrated to marry a charming Indiana girl. RocketBuild is Kyle’s first foray into a second career, as a developer, having spent much of his professional life in business development. Kyle is an unabashed fan of the Bengals (it’s not his fault), and loves to follow soccer.
